NEWARK (N. J.) PARKS. 

Newark, N. J., is Indeed a fortunate town, 
ideally placed ■ for tbe amusement of its citi- 
zen": its proximity to Xew York City, with its 
wealth of amusements, is an advantage that 
many -.f Its Inhabitants fail 'to realize. Trains 
go and come- in very, rapid snccession over a 
most accummoflatlng number of - Eastern road. 
>.pd». Py getting an earl.v stOTt. any Joy- 
8earc?itDg Newarkian can accoihplish the tliTills 
of bust -Ing Coney. But Coney falls to lure the 
loyal citizens of the New Jtrsey- mettopblls. 
Riiteriirlsing minds - have supplied - It with a 
li<< nldide of theatres and - three of the most 
attractive parks that the readers can imagine. 
These' three are: Electric Park, of which Chas. 
A. Dunlaii is the bead: Oly-mpic Park, of which 
H. H, A. Schmidt is, the hiad, and Hillside 
.taiiisement Park, of which E. H. TbalW is 
solely responsible. It was the writer's pleas- 
ure ;tb enjo.v the hospitality .off .the two first-

at greater length:" the last-onentioncd 7.-iIl have 
a review in an Immediately subsetiiient Iwn". 

There . is . a greennrss. a verdure, about the 
Newark parks . that ; makes them prepossessing. 
Bow !moeh ' more appealing they' "are than the 
the ' boardwalk-floored, leafless.' grassless New 
Totk parks. Their frondescence satisfies us 
that thr'y tulflll the ver.v definition of a |>ark 
much more than the concession- •overed, extra- 
vagantly-ilghted' resorts'- of. tbe ' Knickerbocker 
State. ■' ■ .':' ■:■-■",'•■■:■•■..''.*' ... 



An Interesting half-boor ride on the Spriiia. 
field Avenne car coaveys one from tbe center 
of tbe town to Olympic Park, where a majtatic 
arched vatrsui-e invites one to paaa liem-ath 
it into the fascinations of the grounds. The 
abundance of grass, of- liowers and fresh air 
furnish an auspicious beginning. To the rlt;bt 
as one enters, the frame hostelry ot the pro- 
prietor is located: dlrKtly behind this Is tlie 
ofllcial office building — a small two-story iilaoK 
of ideal proportlona, -aurronnded . by- Bowen- of

company of Abom players are ~ soon to enjey 
tbe close of a prosperous season. The fars- 
weil festivities are to take the form of a two

with justified. pr!de that after two years of 
faeard-rendihg enforced idleness, this stadinm is 
to be opened to the sound of the . equine hoofs,

all redblooded Sew Jeraeyltea have been long-

A very pleaselnt twenty-mlirate tide from 
the noisome center ot Newark, brings one to 
the delights, of Electric Park, well named 
Slectrlc, since it has 'no less than 30.000 elTul- 
^reiit incandescent, electric bnlbs studded on 
'vpry available point of vantage, so arranged 
^ to present a perfectly symmetrical panorama 
rrom the distance and a haven ot splendor 
from witWn.* ..... 

.\ winning feature ot the park is the area 
Mhich it comprises, ' some of 'Which- Is covered 
•y tall shade trees, under which the most 
frolicking picnic parties can gather, - and the 
remainder ot which Is devoted to armnaements. 
i>n the right as one enters Is the Casino, where 
>ne can obtain both the choicest foods and bev- 
•ragea, . VarioiiB. Small concessious thence skirt 
he way to the hippodrome or Inclosed arena, In

she state ot New jersey for' the purpose. Ad- 
mission is charged for the grandstand seats, 
bat admission te the park also entitles one to 
t glimpse of this performance, albeit yon 
ire Goitapelted to stand. 

Next to the arena la the musical carousel,' and 
.et It be understood that the children all know 
the pleasnres that this nook of the park alTanls 
them. Next In turn comes the new $30 OOO 
roller coaster, a veritable peer of Us kind. 
This machine Is Just enjoying the first season 
ot Its career. Without a doubt It Is one of 
ibe safest In. the world, with such wicked dips 
ind sharp turns that one ride falls to suffice 
the ordinary patron. It Is almost entirely of 
the most dnrable maple and eqnlpped with the 
latest ot engines and safety- derteca. The Crlf-

proprietor, F. M, Kemp, has so arranged mat- 
ters that the boys can live just as It they were 
out on the ranch. Little cabins have been 
built, similar to those In the West, and a 
regular cowboy settlement and Wild West town 
Is presented. This Is one ot the most ideal 
irrangements Imaginable and the boys and girls 
ippreclate It immensely. Aronnd from this Is 
located the beautiful dance hall,' as carefully 
kiiilt as the best In the state. A restaorant ad- 
"1ns it. The Boor of the dance hall (SOxlAS 
feet) is 8t bard wood and so brlgfitly Illuminated 
that yon almply can't withhold dancing on It 
i» soon as Sweet & Vincent's Band of eight 
men etrlke op their dulcet strains. The charge 
mr daDclDg is very nominal (one cent per 
wrson per dance). Needless to remark. Man- 
lier nnnlap has created the tnoat popular dance

WHITNEY FORFEITS RIGHT/ 

To American and English Production of Der Rosenkayalier, 
On Account of Tremendous Expense Necessary for 
the Proper Staging of Magnificent Opera 



london, Aug- 22 (Special to The Billboard). 
— On reaching London yesterday,' P. 0. 'Whitney 
formally cancelled all his arrangements for the 
production of Der Rosenkaval-ier, forfeiting both 
the American and English rights. 

Mr. Whitney states that bis original opinion 
of Der Bosenkavaller as a brilliant mnslcal work 
remains unchanged, and that the alteration Of 
his plans was solely on account of the enormous 
expense that nonld be attendant upon the pro- 
duction of the piece. The composer requires an 
orhcestra of 82 musicians, while the total 
strength of the company, including artists and 
chorus, would be over 2,000. Another thing Is 
that the ooera was to be given Is German, 
which at once limits the patronage. 

Outside of New York, amy three American 
cities olfered any prospects, .of reasonable sup- 
port—Boston. Phnaddphla ' and. 'Chicago— and 
they were by . no means ' certain. The railway 
fares, too, wonid liave been practically prtdilbl- 
tlve. . . 

In addition to paying large advance royalties, 
Mr. Whitney , lua already spent a coudderable

dict that, with the ripening of Boyesen's pow- 
ers, be will do for .the .drama of American life 
what the foremost European, playwrights have 
done for the drama of older civilizations. Mr. 
Boyesen's manuscripts have the technical ex- 
cellence of .-Enropean-made plays, combined with 
the dramatic strength and optimistic ' outlook 
characteristic of American laaywritlng. Ev- 
erything that Jlr. -Boyesen-has written la close- 
ly related tor the psychology, the morals and

WELLS LEA SES NEW LYRIC 

Richmond, Vs., Aug. -28 (Special to Tbe 
Billboard). — Jake Wells today closed a. deal 
with M. I/. Hofhelmer. whereby tbe lortle The. 
atre, }nst built, la leased for a term ot yeara 
to Welta and bis ssioelates. -Tbli breaks down 
the threatened: opposition to., the Wells and' 
Leatb; awnpanyiliitejssto-. lni tbis . istste, , and< 
lanfiuWtOa jMoiM^^ the tb«iti< 



The statement Is made that tten haa bees 
more orr.leaa friction. between. Tafi and Havlln 
for a number of yeara, dating back to the 
time when David SInton waa alive and Bala- 
forth & Havlln were the lessees of , the boose. 
It seems that Ralnforth Jfc-'UavIin were never 
able to get a lease that save them axelnslTe 
control ot tbe bonae. aa Mts.''C. P. TSft, Mr. 
Simon's dangbfer. was a~ supporter and patron 
of the German Theatre Company, and ttaraagh 
her the German Theatre (company haa rented 
tbe Grand Opera House for their prodnctlou 
on Sunday nbthts during the regular season. 
This, of course, waa a - handicap to Messn. 
Balnfortta & Havlln. aa It only gave them • 
six days' booking for their attractions, cottint 
OQt Sbnday, which. In Cincinnati.. Is probablr 
tbe best night in. the week for, tbeatfes. The 
handicap became more exaggerated when tbe 
SbnlKrts opened tbe I,yne Tneatre, mnslng tbe 
boase Sundays ss well as the other, nights. 
Tbis E^ve tbe Sbuberts quite an advantage am 
was qalte an important factor lik-lbelr struggle 
for a foothold during tbe first two years er 
the life of the Lyric 

Another incident that did not add to tbi 
good feeling between the . Tatts and . Havlia. 
was about three years ago, when the Tlmei- 
Star, Mr. Tat t's newspaper, ralaed ithq .tbest- 
Tlcal adrertlFtng rates. Havlln, at' the time. 
Joined with the other theatrical, masagem aai 
refused to advertise. In ; tbe Times-Star, am 
placed In bis tbestre megram a notlee to that 
effect. It wss often lemsrked at the tlbie that 
Havlln's stand In the matter woold not help 
bim any In getting s new lease St the explratlea 
of the present one. . Harry Bainforth letlrel 
from tbe firm of. Bainforth & Havlla sevtril 
year» ago. and Havlla assumed sole control «t

In addition to the above, it. ta aald. then 
will be a new Richmond In the theatrical fieU

tice has not, however, reached the state 
of monopoly, nor is it ever likely to, due 
to UK) rapid changes that take place 
in the amusement world.^ - Any . conqes-

which It Is always best to cast it aside 
and scramble for something new. 
While one man labors at new schemes 
and devices, so does his competitor 
and soon he finds that to keep in front, 
he can not count on any one form of 
concession for longer than one or two 
seasons. Ttds shifting of popularity 
is the backbone of the profession and 
keeps it fiowing in a free and urOm- 
poverishable state. Thus It Is that the

THE MODERN CONCESSIONAIRE 

The concessionaire is the most es- 
. sential element of every outdoor enter- 
terprise— the parls, the fair, the car 
nivaL He Is a big factor at the cir- 
cus—the red corpuscle Uiat gives the 
life and vigor to the blood. Parks are 
splendid institutions but without the in 
" telUgent direction- of the privilege hold- 
er's Ambition they wouldbe naught else 

■ thaji val*id irfchlc grounds, void of en- 
tertainment and pleasiure. 

A manager can hope to draw the 
crowd on ; the strength of the beauty 
of his grounds, its .sbadiness and cool 

; leafy' gri»ves--biit 'hia hope will not 
rest, on the profitable foundation that 

, It would, were he not to introduce Mr. 

: Concessioner to hla premises. 

The typical privilege man la by very 

'nature,;^ a . reitfcent, tacltumt business 
. than during working hours, but a warm- 

. hearted, ■ congenial contpanion . when 
his toils are over. He never conducts 

. his. occupations in- the vaunting, vain 
glorious method- that - other groups of 
men In other fields ar© -wont to do. He 

..Is -on the whole a self -sufficient fellow; 
content to : t^e care of his own in- 
tereMs^-: without meddling into the. in- 
ner Jof Us Neighbors' worries. It is 
because of this confined and what may 
be termed concentrated energy that 
eaci cbhcessidner "contributes his mo 
dicum; to the, general success of any 
junusement enterprise in which he en- 
gages. 

Quite a few instances of promoters 
trying to take advantage of their con- 

^ c(»slon«s have vbeen recorded from 
time to tlme^ but thei plucky little fel 
low usually teaches the would-be pa- 
trician a good, sound lesson that he 
never, forgets, and never again does 
the :fcBCJner try to do £ui injustice to 
any i concessioner.^ 

Just as In all commercial linesi so 
In the privilege^ gtame, the industry Is 
beine carried on In. larger and broader 

. channdSL There waii a time when there 

■ was almost one concessioner to every 
booth or attraction. Today, however, 
the- more prosperous fellow often con 

' trols a number of concessions and ap- 



bur Uttle- Chicago friend did not ex- 
actly 'Neash In" last week, hut It has 
ceased to be a contemporary, -never- 
thele^, however a poor specimen it 
may have been at its best. The fact 
that it failed to comply with the print- 
er's demands to "come adross" Is re- 
sponsible for its demise, though it has 
been moribund from the very moment 
of its birth, and the ' obsequies ' were 
without pomp or ceremony. 

The failure of the paper to establish 
itself Is not due altogether to; lack of 
ability or to a negligible quantity of 
perseverance in the make-up of Its 
founders, promoters — and now its chief 
(we might truthfully say Its only) 
mourners. There was no place for It 
It was a supererogation, an excres- 
cence, a thing for whidi there was 
neither' need nor: excuse for Its being. 

It tried to break Into a field iaiready 
covered thoroughly, impartially and 
disinterestedly by The Billboard,- and 
instead of turning Its energies (save 
the mailE!) - to the . uplifting of the 
amtisemeht profession, it sought by bb 
vious Innnendos and hints of big stick 
methods to coerce patronage, and gain 
a following tluough f ear of Its antag 
onlsm.- 

Theire wds no room for it, even;.If it 
bad einployed a different policy. V-.But 
as it was — sic seniper superomnibtus. 

The Ebxnler dtJhoolmaster, a dramatization 
of Edward Eggleston's famoos American clas- 
8te by Benlab Foynter, was piodaced for the 
first time at Ft. Wayne, lod., Aueost 10, and 
despite tbe intense beat was grepted by a large 
sKdii-nce. The numerous curtain calls denoted 
the success of the piece.

ADVERTISme TALKS 



Some of the smaller publications 
could almost eke out an existence 
from tne pruceeds that could be de- 
rived from advertising that The Bill- 
. board declines to accept. Not a u e.ek 
passes but advertisiiie copy which is 
received, accompanied by ciuih to jjay 
for its; insertion, is returned to the 
tienders becatise it would have a ten- 
dency to 'besmirch our columns and 
debauch the amusoment . business. 

Legitimate advertisers should not 
be forced' to. associate witt^ thoRe ad- 
venturers in - the advertising field 
whose greed induces them to make 
promises tliey are unable ts fuUfil. 
An advertiser is judged by the com- 
pany he keeps, and the dishonesty of 
one advertiser -reQects discredit upon 
the honest ones who advertist^ in the 
same paper. 

.^n occasional advertisement which 
'shoidd not be allowed to appear is 
likely to creep inta the' advertising 
cnJumnB of any muer, but it is tbe 
endeavor of The Billboard to protect 
both honest advertiisers from undesir- 
able association and uur readers from 
frauds. ^ When our attention is called 
to unfair dealing, a prompt investiga- 
tion is niade, the advertiser com|)elled 
to make restitution uiid his bueinesis 
thereafter declined.. 
° .Action of this kind is not entirelv 
unselfish on the part of The Billb.iard, 
because we realize that it is to our 
interest as publishei-s of- the leading 
amusement weekly to seek the ad- 
vaiicement of the amasement btita- 
.licss. Entirely inde^tendent and en- 
gaged' in uo factiontu fight, our mle 
object is to proinote the interest of 
amusementfl as a whole. 

As recipien ts of the ad vertiping pat- 
ronage of men who have devotea tiioir 
time, energy, capital and intellect to, 
the upbuilding of the motion picture 
business, we deem it our duty to pro- 
tect thentfroin those who would un- 
dermine it. Films and dides depict- 
ing hangings, burning at the stake, 
white slavery and' others of. a sensa- 
tional nature do not have a. tendency 
to uplift ami perpetuate tiie motinn 
picture business. ' Advertisinviof such 
nlins and slides is alw&ya declined by 
The. Billboard, regardless' of how re- 
mtmerative it may -bo.- ' That t!ii« 
Ijolicy is appreciated is BDuwn by the 
constantly increasiog 'volume of od- 
yertising, • '

The World of Amusement 



NEW SHOW INTERESTING. 

The Whirl ot Mlrtb or Dooley's BecepUoiit 
Is a farce In two acts, written by Edgar Sel- 
Aen. It Is not the borlesqne type of attraction, 
bat an interesting and entertaining musical show 
Ben W. Harris wrote the music and George Pax- 
toa staged the nnmbers. The entire production 
VU made under the personal direction of 
Charles W. Daniels. 

A most competent cast of people has been en- 
gaged. Eddie B. Collins, who is known as The 
Uan With the Fnnny Face, Is principal com- 
edian; Nellie Walker is prima donna. Others 
with -the company are: William J. Senney, 
Willie Mack, George M. George, Harry McAvoy, 
Charles 7eager, Howard Dalley, Nellie Walker, 
Hester Waters, the sonbrette, Mande Stevens, 
Ida Yeager, Edgar Hall, Robert Seattle, Irrin 
Kllnger, Arthur Hamrty, B. J. Levy, a male 
cfaonxs of six, and sixteen girls. 

Edgar Selden has provided an interesting 
book' and . Eddie Collins, as well as the others, 
in the cast, every opportunity to make the best 
of tbeir parts. 

The Whirl of Mirth shonld be one of the best 
shows on the Wheel this season. Comparisons 
can not be . made at this time as most- of the 
shows are not yet opened, but judging from 
what attractions have been on the Wheels in 
previous years The Whirl of -Mirth stands up 
well In comparison. 

JACK SINGER'S SHOWS. 



The Bchman Show will be the only Singer 
show to retain Its old title and. will be a strong 
Show, using as the book a modified version of 
the Girl from Rector's, with Florence Mills as

well-known players as May Shirk, who will play

Clara Raymond. Geraldine May. Betty Davison, 
Jolin H. Price, Ralph Rockway and Thomas

scenery and properties than any burles^iae show 
which ever took the road and Its extra feature 
will consist of a novelty In the way of'tt mys- 
terious fountain. In which real water will be 
used and which will require an entire car to 
transport It from stand to stand. One of the 
features ot the Painting the Town Show wUl be 
the singing. A small operetta will be Included 
In the numbers, for wUch a special chorus of 
solo and choir singers have heen engaged.

TRIBUTE T O A MINSTREL. 

The poetical tribute to Al. O. FleldMiere re- 
produced, was wiitten by Dr. H. M. Bamlll ot 
NashvlUe, Tenn., and was printed in ths Con- 
federate Veteran: 

TO AL. 6. FIEILD. 
When labor's done and life Is pas^ 
As comes to all ot us at last. 
And at the Judgement bar we stoniQ, 
The sheep and goats on either han^ ' 
I think I know your final plea 
And wbat TOOT future fate shall fife 

Wtaea 43abrlel'a trumpet thrice bas vested. 
His cty rings fmrth, 'Wall AL G. Vleiai" 
And bowing tow betee the Book 
Of Fate, with kind bnt bomely look. 
The prince of modem minstrels stands. 
An old-time banjo In his hands. 

The angel speaks, "What Is thy plea. 
Whereon must rest thy destiny?" 
Then, slowly kneeling. Field doth cay: 
"Dear Lord, on this thy judgement dsy, 
Wblch long ago tbon gavest me, 

I've tried to charm sway men's fean. 
And oft have dried the mourner's tears; 
B.v sons and laneh and merry jest. 
Thy minstrel. Lord, bath done, bis best" 
Tben with a smile upon bis face, 
The angcl answers, fall of grace: 

"Wei! done, good minstrel, thoneh men caip. 
Unstring thy banjo, take- this harp; 
And when the Pharisee shall frown. 
Tune np tby harp and wear thy crown," 

THE STAGE OF THE RENAISSANCE 
IN ITALY. 



During the period of the Benalssance In Italy, 
when in other countries the actors, by being 
compelled to play more frequently than hsd 
hitherto been customary, were compelled to 
seek refuge inside a hnilding, as they could not 
repeatedly expose themselves to the risk or 
having their performance spoiled by torrents 
of rain, or other Inclemencies of weather, 
on the other hand, m Italy, with Its equal cli- 
mate, the risk is not so great, and even at this 
day there are many open-air theatres in that 
country. The staee in those days consisted o( 
a square wootlcn plattorro about six feet histi. 
covered with canvas all around the bottom. The 
front and sides of the stage are open. Tlie 
hack consisted of a decorated curtain, fastenod 
to a partition of lathes. Behind this baclt- 
ground was the dressing room, used by actors 
and actresses togother, in which they retiroil 
also during tlie Intervals of their octing. For 
the medieval custom that nil performers remain 
visible to the audience during the whole play 
no longer suited the conditions of the stage, (or 
one tiling, bccnhse/In the small professional 
companies the same actor had frequently to ptaj 
several parts, and bccanse the new repertolrfs 
reonired various changes of costtimo. 

.The decorative back-cloth was either palntei 
as a landscape In perspective, a street, etc.. 
and in this case the actors went In and out Hf 
simply pulllni? the curtain a little one way or 
the other. Or the backgronnd consisted simplf 
ot draperies, and In this cose the actors w-nl 
In and out in different places, and where tlipy 
were supposed to listen unseen to some speccli 
on the stage they nnt their heads between Its 
folds. Tile latter kind of background seems to 
have hopu most commonly used; at least, in 
most llliistrattons we notice such a richly foMod 
bnck-cloth with heads pnoplnit out. DndoubtefllJ 
this T-as th" older "rrangcmcnt, and the palntril 
curtain n Intor reform. 

Frelicli olisraviii^rs of tho sivteenfh cpnlurf 
show oxortly tlie same scenic rnnstructlon. '^^r*

week's bill, bnt will put: on vaudeville ana 
motion pictntea for the remaining days of Uie 
summer eeason. The early closing is caused 
mostly by tbe players having to depart for

CINCINNATI, O. 

The Ci nc i n nati park season is searing the 
end, bnt the various amusement resorts continue 
to draw as well as at any time during the 

season. 

Coney Island's Harvest Home and Sliver Ju- 
bilee are on in toll blast, and for the first time 
In several years the boats have been forced to 
make extra trips to handle the crowds. Tlie 
tiippodrome races on tbe quarter-mile track are 
a big hit, and tbe Midway, with the Oriental 
and Lion Shows, and the fat man and Pfalilppluo 
budgets, is doing a bi- business. The MardI 
Gras an4. Masked Carnival on the 24th, the first 
ever held in Cindnnati, 'was a big success. 
Elaborate MardI Gras decoratUma and special 
dectrlc lights added to the event. Prises were 
given for the most comic costumes. Taken in 
all. Coney's 1911 season has been the most suc- 
cessful In years. 

The recent fire at Chester Park would be 
dassed as a rather high-priced attraction, but

The New Metropolitan Theatre wUl be com- 
pleted and probably opened September 18. It 
is undecided what company Klaw & Erianger 
will send out from New York to this beautiful

Maid, with Mlzil HaJos. the Hungarian song- 
bird. Whatever tbe production may be, It will 
lie a dlstlngnlsbed company. George McKen- 
ale, representative of Klaw & Eriangsr, has 
r:TeIved advices from headquarters that Messrs.

opening nlgbt. and that they will have at

Gilbert Barry, for several years manager of 
tbe Grand Opera House, will be the manager of 
John Cort's new tbeatre at Ogden, Utah, wblcb

Cort built tbe Grand Opera House, which was 
the keystone to bis later success, being one of 
his oldest and most trusted employees.

According to the Portland Oregonian, Alex- 
ander Pantages has lefus^-d an offer of five 
million dollars for bis chain of theatres. Those

very tborongbl.v, and estimated that bis real 
t-state, leas-^s, etc., were worth f4.000.000, and 
added a bonus of $1,000,000 for good will. Mr. 
Pantages refused the offer and It Is announced 
that be will at once spend $2,000,000 In new 
theatres. Inasmuch as be Is at pres.-nt building 
on Market Street in San Francisco, and In one 
of tbe most desirable parts of Portland— both 
theatres being Class-A steel buildings — this 
seems to be a conservative estimate. 

Tbe Williams Stock Company opened at the 
Princess Theatre in Victoria, B. C. Angnst 6,

between the rival theatrical factions, Klaw &

support two flrst-class tiieatres at the high 
prices of admission. . The Brandeis wUl open 
the last of August snd tin management an- 
nounces the best booking that this city has seen

T%e writer was a guest of the Campbell Bros.* 
Shows for three days. In Nebraska, where the 
show has put In five weeks' time, and while 
business has not been what It was In former 
years. In this territory, it was quite satisfac- 
tory considering the condition of the CJimtry 
and what other tented Shows are doing this 
season. The show Is about the same alae as ln 
the past, and the performance on an average 
of shows of its sixe, while the menagerie makes 
a very creditable showing. The Campijell 
Brothers have nine performing elephants that 
would be a credit to any show. The stock 
looks flue and painters are with the show, golus 
over all the wagons and dens, which will great- 
ly Improve their appearance on parade- My 
visit with Fred Hatfield, Ed. Campbell and 
others connected with tlie show, was a very 
dellebttnl one, and every courtesy was shown 
me by the Camphell Brothers.

PBOSPECTS OF ROIXER SKATING IN THE 
FtmiBB. 

fievlTal of Toiler skating^ .Xhe same old 
MOW Is OQ tlie lips at managera, giofesstonal 
Bkatera ana tliose mostly interested in t&e wel- 
fare of ToUar skating for tbe past fonr years. 
Kack time It Is some one glvlne Us views on 
bow the roller game is going to pan out, and 
tbe difference of opinions In many cases are 
qnite a contrast. Still tbe game on little 
-wbeels goes on just tbe same as tbengb it were 
one of onr regular bnsiness enterprises. And 
so It wQl be for tbose wbo are conducting tbeit 
■Icatlng rinks la tbe manner like some tbat I 
IWTe visited tbe past year. In these rinks there 
la BO. sach tiling as how long they are going to 
last, bnt tbe thouglit of tbe manager who is 
condnctlne a. well-Kovemed rink Is what he can 
give his patrons in the way of masqnerades, 
flower carnlTals, popular blrthdny parties. May 
pole dance, fancy and graceful skating con- 
tests and numerous other souvenir nights to best 
please them. . It la very true that there are 
rinks throughoat -the country that have closed 
their doors, they say, for lack of bnsiness: in 
fact, that is the story tbat is etrcnlated. but in 
many cases It Is not the tmth. I have been 
told by the help employed In some of these 
Tlnks that if the rink had been properly man- 
aged and. the manager-wonld have spent a little 
moneir In. trying; tOy:plea^.1iIs patTOBSr tba^ the 
rtnk wonld be still; nnmlng. Still It Is natntal 
that in some of the small places where rinks 
are conducted. -on a small scale, that , if there 
Is not ;enongh -life, kept info the game it will 
die ont.sooner than, in the larjier cities, and in 
: most . Instances It Is tlie small Tlnks that are 
not siiccessfnl. ' In other cases where the rinks 
are ..closed for. the . summer months,' -tihe skat- 
ers, are very eager for the fall and winter op- 
ening.' and In these places business has been 
good ever since the onenlng of the link in that 
localItyi:- .Sa>'..Z :flsd; that .the peAlmlstie opln- 
lan Is held only by managers who mismanage 



LEO GLASBRENNER, 




Winner ot the Chicago Street Marathon, April 
23, 19U. Age IT years. 



If rink managers were to get into closer touch 
with one anoUier, organize associations ana en- 
ter Into correspondence' with each ouier, tbe 
skating game should live aa long as any other 
sport. If the rink business In your town Is on 
the vrane. book attractions. Son wUI And It a 
great help. Bun local alCaIrs now and then, 
put on a good race or a novelty event, give 
your patrons something to come again for, and 
they 'will keep your, rink open. Repwts are be- 
ing circulated about the opening of new rinks 
in new localities, and in such places bnsiness 
has been very good. ' Many of the popular rinks 
in the large cities have tooted attractions many 
montlis ahead, which, goes to show that the 
roller skating same has not yet reached its 
■Waterloo. Tbe Western Skating Association 
has been a great help to the skating game, 
and its officers are always ready to lend a help- 
ing liand whenever it is called upon to do en. 
I woold like at all times to hear from mana- 
gers of rinks and skaters throughout the count- 
try, and may be able to answer many ques- 
tions in doubt and render valuable assistance 
in many cases.

fastest amateurs at Riverview Kink In the 
early part of the stmimer and finished in the 
list of prizes in many other races before he 
retired for the summer. He is good on either 
a flat or banked track, and when the fall sea-

new records. He lias plenty of endurance, is 
one of tbose youngsters fnU of determination

we hope to hear more about -him later on.

bothered In any way for the balance of the 
week. The shows all did capacit.v bnslness,

NO AGREEM ENT 

Circus Men Deny that Any Adjustment of the Associated 
Billposters' Circus Committee's Demands for Tickets 
Has Been Effected — Other Circus News 



NO BILLPOSTtNG AGREEMENT. 



There appears to be no fonndatioix la trntb 
for the report pablisbed in the last edition of 
the ofQdal organ of the Associated Billposters to 
the effect that the circus men and the bill- 
pasters' association liad reached an onderstand- 
Ing with regard to the issnance of tickets to 
billposters and that an differences had l>een 
^^ched np at the Asbury Paris Convention In 

If sncli an agreement had been reached, the 
Billpostlng Committee for the Showmen's As- 
sociation wonld know something alioat It, bnt 
no member of that committee iias had tha 
sllshtesti: Intimation of an adjnstment. 

Furthermore . neither the terms of the agree- 
ment nor the names of the circus men partlci- 
patlnjr in It liave been promnlgated as has here- 
tofore always l>een the custom when such agree- 
ments were effected. 

No daabt the wish of the Associated Billpost- 
ers has constituted Itself father to the tliought 
as disseminated by their official organ. 

So far, however, Herbert Ouce seems to be 
the goat. 

COL. JAS. T. INKES DEAD. 

Colonel James T. Inters, who died at his home 
In Cheltenham, Pa., August 2, was iMm about 
1S43 in Pittsburg, in a locality called Hard- 
scrabble, near where the mufiicipal bfdldings 
now stand. When James T: was a baby the 
family embarlied on a Sat boat and drifted 
down :t(^ what is now CoTington, Ky. At that 
time tUs partr of the country was wild. When 
only a. lad he- went- to'^ Richmond, Ind., to en- 
list , in ' the army as a drummer boy. He as 
later, made drum major and soon after was 
made second lientenant of the STtb Indiana Beg- 
iment. 

He and his brother, Wesley Inkes, were with 
the late P. T. Bamnm for many years. Inkes' 
show career covered a period of over forty years. 
He was owner of several large museums in his 
tune, one in St. Ixiuis, Mo., and . anotber In 
Bza(dElyn, N. T. He was associated with Mr. 
Hntchuon, of the Bamnm & Bailey Show and 
H. P. L. Harris, Stewart Craven, Geo, Bunnell, 
Add Nathans and a host of othen. Daring the 

Sast ten years he has been a' parteer of Flndley 
raden, with the exception of one season when 
he -was with H. Wilson of the Buffalo BUI 



As a man he was retiring and scrupnlonsly 
bonest, never descending to anytliing qoestlan- 
able. He was a gentleman of the old school 
and was an artist in i;lafis manipulation. His 
body was laid to rest In Nnthwood Cemetery. 



BOYD BURRO WES S HOW BURNED 

A car containing the entire tent oatot, scen- 
ery and' property of Boyd Burrowes -Show, all 
the performers' tmnks, costumes and Instru- 
ments and Ivy's troop of dogs, was destroyed 
by fire while in transit between Mason City and 
Utchfield, Meb., August 16. As It is not in- 
surable the loss is heavy. Every effort will 
be made to replace tile outfit and resume busi- 
ness at an earqr date. 

TWO BILLS' ADVANCE NOTES. 



Daring the past foor weeks, while running 
through the Middle West, the men of advertis- 
ing car No. 2, Buffalo Bill-Pawnee Bill Com- 
bined Exiilbitions, have had opportunities to 
exchange social calls and courtesies with friends 
omnected with tented organizations touring 
through that territory. - 

Willie the Bamnm & Bailey Show was at 
Davenport, Iowa, on Snnday, July 23, Jim 
Drncker, AL Estedet and Lew Brownell of 
car No. 2, were royally entertained by the 
Hart Brothers, James Powers and the Everetts 
of the Bamnm & Bailey Circus. They had 
dinner in the cook tent, were escorted tiirough 
the various departments, and given every at- 
tention. 

At the evening performance, the day follow- 
ing, Victor B. Cooke, manager of car No. 2, 
bis broflier. Vnlcan COoke, Peter S. MCNally. 
press representative: Jack Beardon, boss bill- 
poster, and others, were the guests of Mr. 
Sam McCracken and ^l^aauxer Charles Hutch- 
inson and Auditor Fred De Wolfe. 

Mr. TlMmas Evans, for a great many years

with the Forepaugh-Sells Cticns, and who Is now 
with the Bamnm & Bailey ontfit, bad a very 
pleasant meeting with Mr. McNally, who some 
years ago was press agent with tiiat organiza- 
tion. 

Peter S. McNally, press agent with the Buf- 
falo BlU-Pawnee Bill Combined Exiilbitions, 
was the guest of Mr. David Leahy, private sec- 
retary to Governor Stnbbs of Kansas, on his 
recent visit to Topeka. Mr. McNaUy was es- 
corted over the State Capital, was dined by 
Mr. Leahy and also by Editor Keeney of the 
State Journal. 

In almcst every city and town visited by ad- 
vertising car No. 2 of the Two Bills' Shows, 
some siKimming pool, natatorium or some public 
bathing lieadi has been found and everybody has 
taken the opportunity to indulge in a swim. 
Mr. McNally, the press agent, who has been 
for years the champion long-distance swimmer 
of the world, and who has an unexcelled record 
as a life-saver, has given the boys Ms per- 
sonal attention and has developetl several na- 
tatorial wonders. The boys have • created a 
sensation everywhere they have appeared by 
their excellence in feats of natation. 

Car; No. 2 was side-tracked for a night at 
Newton, Kan., wiiile en route to Hutchinson, 
and during the evening a number of the boys 
attended a moving picture show. While the 
show was in progress a .film caught fire and the 
audience was se&L-d vrith panic. There might 
have been serious results had it not been for 
the presence of mind of Victor B. Cooke, "Pud" 
Johnson, Xew BrowneU, Earl Johnson and Ed. 
Decker, who, r reallziag the situation, jumped 
into the breach and by persuasive words and, 
even the exercise of piiysical force, compelled 
the audience to file out of the doors of t£e thea- 
tre in good order. As a consequence notiody 
was injured, yet there were many persons there 
who were irate over the rough handling meted 
out to them by tlie boys of car No. 2. 

Millard Walton, who is secretary to Vic- 
tor B. Cooke, and who, by the way, is a 
nephew of Mr. W. D. Coxey, one of the lead- 
ing publicity promoters of the country, is writ- 
ing an Interesting story of his first year's ex- 
perience on the road, which he pnrposes pub- 
lishing on his return to bis home at Philadel- 
phia' tUs fall. Mr. Walton la a very bright 
young man, and verT-'popnlar with liis asso- 
ciates.

MY CIRCUS GENEALOGY. 



By TDK HOBTH. 

Had an Interesting interview recently with 
G. F. Holland, the (dd-tlme circus man aud 
bare-back rider, who Informed me that my 
grand-father. Levi J. North, was the peer of 
all baie-back riders of the '50's and '60's; that 
Levi J. North was the first man to do a som- 
ersaplt on a horse and that he also did 100 
somersanlts on a vaulting tioard, which record 
Still holds good: that the Levi J. North Great 
National Amphitheatre and circus played to 
Immense business in Chicago for six months 
dnrln^ 1S5&; that the Amphitheatre was situated 
on Monroe Street in Chicago "In a very re- 
spectable and retired part of the city," and 
that the Majestic Theatre Is now on that loca- 
tion. The Amphitheatre was to Chicago In 
those days what the Hippodrome is to New 
York City today. 

Tony Pastor was a down and Wm. Kennedy 
was a leaper. When In later years Tony Pas- 
tor opened his own theatre, Mr. Kennedy was 
his door man and remained in that capacity 
until Mr. Pastor's death. 

Victoria North, my aunt, was Vesta Victoria's 
mother. My father, George L. N(Sth, was a 
six-year-old rider. 



Last Wednesday the- first advance car of the 
Hagenbeck-Wallace Shows was attaclied to the 
rear of a C. & E. I. train and on the same 
car was the private car "Wisconsin." owned 
by Mr. John Rlngllng. The two cars were 
connectf-d with each otlier. This Incident seemed 
to be too much for the Baraboo abowmaa, f^r 
at Chaffee bis elephant car Jnmpeil the 6ack. 
Mr. BIngling was en route to Birmingham, 
Ala., and the Wallace advance ear -was going 
to Cape Girardeau. Mo. 

The Yankee Bobinson Show recently suffered 
a severe loss by the burning of one of its 
coaches. Another coach was rented from the 
railroad company and the show proceeded with- 
out any delay or serious Inconvenience.

Since mortal man did not dare attend, the 
writer can not give an accurate description of 
the pranks played by this bunch of Eves as 
they frollced in the woods and on the river 
bank near Old VIncennea. The jealons men are 
inellned to chrcolate certain stories that wonld 
Indicate that the ladles took advantage of their 
opportunity to spend a day nnnsually close to 
nature and the water in the river with the ex- 
ception of a tew eaaes of pop, bnttermllk, lem- 
onade and sometUng stronger for those who 
rellataed It. More than*Bixfy members of the 
female contingent of the circus attended the 
onting and all reported a most dellghtfnl time, 
it probably being the first event of the kind in 
the history of circnsdom. Mrs. Sadie Uchtell 
and Mrs. A. B. Bennett were goests. of -honor. 

May God bless the Sardonyx Clnb and their 
friends. 



CIRCUS GOSSIP. 



It Is a posttiv« fact that at least one and pos- 
sibly two animal clrcoses that are at present 
on the Pacifle Coast, will winter at Zapp's 



to winter-qnarters. It Is currently reported 
tsat the Sells-Ploto Show will close October 
14 and it has been announced by the BingUng 
forces at Fayettevllle, Ark., that that show 
win disband in tbat city on Octolier 31, and 
ship direct from there to Baraboo. 

The present administration of Little Rock, 
Ark., Is of the progressive sort, not in tbe 
least hostile to amusement Interests. Tlie cir- 
cus ordinance in that city has been practically 
prohibitive but the present administration head- 
ed by Mayor Charles £. Taylor, has secured 
moat liberal reductions and consequently at 
least two of tbe big shows will exhibit In that 
city this season instead of being forced across 
the river to Argenta. 

Lawrence P. Wall and bis dancing kids, Lo- 
retta Newman and Jimmle Tan. visited the Two 
Bills Show Angnst 19. which was given on Col. 
W. F. Cody's ranch at bis home town. North 
Platte, Neb. Bnffalo Bill was given a royal 
welcome by tbe people of Nortli I'latte. The 
mayor presented him vltb s lorim; cnp, irMcb 
he said was a token of love from his life-long 
blends, comrades and admirers.

SARDONYX CLU B piCNIC. 

The social side of circus life received a 
novel Impetna with the Hagenbeck-Wallace 
Shows recently when the ladles of that en- 
terpriae coneetved the Idea of enjoying an ex- 
clusive "Hen party." Saturday night dances 
and "stag parllea" have been frequent with 
that show bat never befoi* bad tbe ladles in- 
sisted 00 tbe privilege of ciTioc an ezcloalTe 

siiair. 

There ate eight ladles with the show who 
were horn In tbe same month and they have 
organised a clnb called tbe Sardonyx Clnb, and

Park, Fresno, Cal. The climate at Fresno Is 
the most desirable for animals during the win- 
ter months and Zapp's Park has room and per- 
manent -cages enough to house hundreds of wild 
beasts. Tbe park la tbe borne of James A. 
Morrow, an animal sbow and drcns monaser fvr

menage horses, troupe of ponies, do$$ and inon-

Sirs. Frank A. Bobbins celebrated her birth- 
day at Grand LMge. ^Icb.. August 16. and was 
the recipient of many beautiful presents. Among

Tlneennes (Ind.) continues to be loyal to 
the Hagenbeck-Wallace , Shows. Tbe WaUace 
Show has played In tbat city nine times in the 
last seven years and each time It does great 
bnstnesa. On the 22d it exhibited there again 
and did the biggest business It has ever done 
there, and that, too. In spite of tbe fact 
that tbe Sells-Foremngh Show opened tbe season 
there and tbe 101 Ranch was there very recent- 
ly. On Sunday tbe clcpbants of tbe show were 
taken out to the park and made a feature in a 
novel swimming act tbat attracted thousands 
of Sunday vlaltora to the park. Mr. A. B. Ben- 
nett, one of the 2t-hour men with the show. 
Uvea In Vlncennes and be was elated with the 
way his home town treated his employer. 

It Is fenerally conceded that this baa been an 
off year In the circus bnalneas, but It seems that 
the Hagenbeck-Wallace Show Is the one excep- 
tion among the larger abows that makes tbe 
report true, for that aggregation has been 
Playing to exceptionally "ood business on the 
Bverase and being of an optlmlaUc nature Mr.

A REMINDER I 

Have you not been bumped against the walls of experience in tbe motion 
picture field often enough to have learned the important lesson ? 

It Pays to Get Yoar Films From a Reliable Source ! 
It Pays to Reject All Dubious Offerings! 

A short review of your previous experiences and you will agree we are 
right. You will remember the lifty-tvvo Independent brands that were ad- 
vertised available, etc. The Sales Company at that time secured the best of 
those miuiufoctutes of film, fordga and domestic, and have since secured 
numerous other manufactures of the highest class. 

TVe stand on sure foundation that can not be shattered. 

"When you are approached by promoters with alluring propositions, in- 
spect the possibilities of their future compared with past adventures. 

Beware cf inferior productions and

■ Fzesldettt Tyson; Secretary and . Treasurer 
'flpence and Colonel Sandford H. Cohen, assistant 
to the president, have 'accomplished, the seem- 
Jngiy Impossible In gathering so vast an array 
ef Interesting -exhlbftlonal . properties, and per- 
(eetlne tiie' plans - for their Installing to the 
best advantage. . - 

- -This year the midway, under the? able- direc- 
tion of K. G. Barkoot, will teem with popidar 
tdgb-grade amusements. ^ and no matter In what- 
part of the city of fun the visitor may be, 
£e,'wiU be. kept enjoying himself every moment 
be Is there.' Director Barkoot has had his 
agents East and West, North and South. -seek- 
ing for-new Ideas In the amusement fleld and 
annexing all that were deemed suitable and 
that would tend to outdo all the previous elCorts 
«t others In catering to the tastes ot the great 
American' pnbllc. He has so -nearly - accom- 
plished his alms, that he feels. In offering Us 

rat variety of amusements, he baa succeeded 
securing those that wHI not only make the 
midway "popular," In the commonly - accepted 
sense of the wwd. but also will gain for It 
a fame, -placing It well up toward that of the 
Camons midway for the World's Fair In Chicago. 

Mr. Barkoot has insisted that every attrac- 
tion, every act and every feature must' be of 
the highest order, dean-cut and flrst-class In 
presentation, beyond question of a doubt "able 
to deliver the goods,", presenting Its patrons 
sometiilnK which they cmi not '-find anywhere 
else under like conditions. « - - - • 

It Is the dlreetot'a Intaition to get away 
as mnch as poaaible from the old womout. 
backn^ed midway abows that have traveled up 
-and down: tbionvi and across the land for a 
deeaile. and he deserves mnch credit for his 
canKst taaSesroe to Improve the standing of 
midways. As a matter of, fact, bis Idea has 
been i» collect a sexles of entertainments em- 
bodying quality and class, and -this Idea ap- 
plies to an minor concessions as well. Old 
dllapldkted canvases and. fronts are barred, 
every concession must be outfitted In an at- 
tractive manner, to be in keeping with the 
.deaifly, i»«»ifl«iff»H» appearance presented by other 
concessions. ^ 
- The exposIUon beadonarters are the scene 
of intense activity these days, but officers and 
emplvees alike all seem . to. enjoy the work 
and excitement, for every face wears a smue 

"that won't come off." 

Manager Barkoot Is expected here Thursday 
Idgfat. to ovedook the Improvements made In 
the midwsy grounds and to give final instmc- 
ttons to his agents. -, "

queen. So much attention has t>een - deroted 
to the waltz number with Ita ataircase - dance 
that the aadiencea are only beginnings tO- realize 
that- two numbera in the Dnt act are the best 
eompoattlona -Lehar has ever written. The-aoenea

trail: the second in the town which lohn Bale 
Is attempting to develop; the third In June's 
home In the monntalna; , and the last la again

sanctity the offering and refrain from many 
of their petty conceits. It Is only because such 
nWB. as the critic of the New Xork American 
neia the support of the modem cmdely informed 
and Umitedly learned that they entertain' the 
PbMIc with such irrelevant -facetiae a* axe 
misted upon the readers of the American: 

"Of all the aoroughfares In New Tork City 
-bawing peibapa West Ufith Street— East 14th 
Street Is the least lik^ to wallow In Hellenle 
tragedTi" , 

The New Toik Trlbone finds muiA not to its 
approval In the presentation of the Sophocleslan 
drama, bnt directs Its criticisms at the proper 
0aees — the loss' of Intrlnsicallty of effect — 
and the misconception of the depth of the play 
as bconght ont by tbe shortcomings of Its Irving 
Place Interpreters. Tbe complaint against the 
pernimeta is Ibat tlieir rendition, was too aca- 
aeole and too unrelieved by the natural. This 
error can be contrlbnted to their earnestness on 
the commendable groonds that -tbey TCCOgBlze 
tbe cravlty and sobriety of tbe work and 
worked anxloosly though not qnlte snccessfnlly 
to iwrtrsy these qualities. The Trlbnne ills- 
enasea these points 'Rblcfa have been above 
enumerated concerning the production of tbe 
drama at llie Irving Place Tbeatre, Uonday, 
Anguat a. as follows: ^

Tbe idea of' destiny inseparable to the Greek 
tragedrtflK stnAglz^mi^asised in Oedipus Bex. 
thb'. dentil i^t^lt!^ ,of emotion In wblch 
It ' lived knd-%oved, and the element of unre- 
lieved Tlndlcatlveness ..wblch marked all of 
Sophocles' plays, 

1 "Oedipus Bex Is .carried steadily along' to Its 
culmination. There Is .'no^ looking to the right 
or to tbe left, noi.nwless meanderlogs Into 
byways. The more' elaborately each scene Is 
wrought, or any single speech, the more it 
contributes to make stronger, to bring out more 
powerfully, tbe main emotion. In it Sophocles 
shows in perhapa greater degree than In any 
of his other dramas bis wonderful power of 
concentration; In it he shows a wonderful un- 
ion of tbe greatest complexity wltb tlie great- 
est simplicity, of grandeur with harmony ana 
of largeness of lesign with perfect finish. 

"The movement Is not retarded by snpeifln- 
itles. These ate tbroirn off with mnch sklU tbat 
any apparent effort is tmnoticeable. Tbe spec- 
tator is Informed at the outset of tbe clrrum- 
stances of the supreme crisis of the Individual 
iMillny of King Oedipns and sees it later per- 
:rayp(] witli suiireme emotional Intensity. 

"Mr. Keller failed to take full advantage of 
the opportnnlty to show In all Its toll newt and 
greatness tbe lacerated Innocence of .Oedlpna, 
who Is destined by the gods to murder bis 
father and wed bis own motlieT. bringing chil- 
dren Into the world throngh the union. Lillian 
Kingsbury, at times, as Jocasta, wife of Oed- 
ipus, mistook raving for intense feeling and 
emotion. Mayne Lynton. as a priest of Zens, 
showed skin, and Charles Jamea played Telre- 
slas well."

(Contlnsed from page 9.) 

nnmb>rs tbat b?ars the ear-mariks of a big 
winne." Is Lovie Dear, rendered by Ulss Walker 
and B-ibby Kemp. The words and music of 
tbe SOUK are exceptionally good and It would 
not be liazardons to venture tbe opinion that 
It will nut b« long before the number becomes 
popular. 

Hlekey's Comedy Circus, seen at tbe Boof 
only a few weeks ago, retnrned to the Comer 
only to score a bit more pronounced than on the 
occasion of tbe first engagement. Hlcksy bas 
bis ponies exceptlonallT. well trained. His nn- 
rldable mules create the laughter. 

One of the solid bits of tbe show was reg- 
istered by Belle Blandie, tbe lioging com- 



edienne, wbo Is anottaer of the ttoora frequent 
visitors. She sang Day Dreams, I'm Falling la 
Love, gave imitations of Irene Franklin, Jack 
Norwortb, Leila Mclntyre and Madame TTca- 
tlnl with mnch credit to berxelf. 

Collins and Hart, the bnrlesaua strong men, 
repeated this we> k the success attending tbem 
last week at the Fifth Avenue. 

The chi-ery repartee of Stella Uaybew and 
Blllte Taylor and tbe clever songs of tbe pair,

hew headlined the program. 

Paris by Night, Molassa's pantomime, with 
aille, Mario Corio, Mario Molasso. Edward Craw- 
ford, Alice Tojettl and T. Tamakura, sustained 
Int.'rest. Bedml and Arthur close^ the show, 
giving a burlesque on Paris by Night. 



THE MAJESTIC BILL, 

(Oontlnned fram page 13). 

find a new one, tben you'll bave your fingers 
crossed 'as far as critics are concerned. 

Dorotb; Bogers and Company appear in a 
comedy playlet. They are reviewed under New 
Acts. 

Chick Sale, the character change artist, pre- 
sents an offering, called A Country School En- 
tertainment. Mr. Sale enacts all tbe cbaracters, 
from the old maid teacher to the pupils and 
board of directoors. Uis act proves to be one 
of the best comedy offerings where real art Is 
essential. His first impersonation is that of the 
mild, every-body-loves-me old maid teacher. Uis 
conception of tltis part places him high on the 
pedestal of confidence with the audience, and 
with each succeeding impersonation be further 
proves b!S' abUity" as a >eal character artist'. 
Mr. Sale's conception of the country kid parts 
in recitations and song, proved a genuine riot. 
His changes are all made on the stage, and 
consume about twenty seconds. His final cbar- 
acters, depicting members of the school board. 
Is exceedingly ^ever and genulntly fuun3*. Nu 
doubt when tbe time comes for good old Bert 
Davis to give no the game. Chick Sale could 
take bis place, and no one be the wiser. 

Bowers. ' Walter and Crooker, the three rubes, 
offer a' noveltr In comedy acrobatic acts. A 
feature of tbeir offering Is tbe swiftness with 
which tbey work. Evidently experience has 
taught them that an act of this nature can not 
let an audience get "cold" and get away with 
it. Their feats are original and new, and a 
great many of them dltUcnlt. The comedy is 
clean aniS wholesome, and was received very 
nicely. Tbe boys have a clever manner of dos- 
ing the act. Tbey lay head to foot all in a 
line, and have the audience guessing as to tbe 
natnre of the stunt to be polled. At a given 
signal the drop is raised abont a foot, and with 
a yell tbe three rubes roll under and out of 
sight. The success of tbe act was gratifying, 
and made a decided hit. The boys took several 
tmws. 

The Temple Quartet olters a refined stnglns 
acL The boys appear In full dress, and carry 
It well. There Is a noticeable elimination of all 
attempts at low ' comedy, wblch some of the 
straight singing fours seem to tblnk essential. 
As far as refinement la concerned, no small 
amount of credit is due tbe Temple Quartet. 
Their singing Is carried in close harmony with 
all barsbness and sngnstlveness left fsr tbe 
so-called comedy qiurtets. Tbe solos, both bass 
and tenor, mads a great hit, aud were rendered 
in such a self-assnred manner that the result 
was Inevitable. Tbey responded to aereral en- 
cores, and made a number of friends through 
their splendid entertainment. 

Victor Moore and Emma LlttleSeld submit a 
rehearsal sketch, called Back to tne Farm. It 
can hardly be. said that this sketch is worth> 
of the artists playing it, bnt it is funny. Tbeir 
conception of wonld-be vandevllllans Is very 
csmmendable. and tbe laughs throughout the 
act are frequent. Tbe idea Is old, using the 
rongb-neck stage band and working In bare 
stage. However, in closing tbe* act, tbe bur- 
lesque is dropped, and some very clever dancing 
introduced. Miss Llttlefield's dance eq>eclally 
won great approval. Mr. Moore was Victor 
Moore, 'nnf ced 

Bessie Wyno appeared next to closing, and 
in ber first two. numbers (previously mentioned), 
tell flat. Ber third number, a popular soub. 
introducing a inedley of operatic airs In the 
cboms. went very big. and this in Itself should 
bave shown Miss Wynn ttaat efforts on tbe first- 
class of songs were wasted talent. Ber coi.- 
tumes are pleasing and conservative, but were 
It not for her' great ' popularity with Chicago 
audiences, she would have been a dismal failure. 

The Four Begals close the show in feats of 
strength and endurance, and bave a novel settlne 
and Tehlel» for tbeir work, showing the interior 
of a blacksmith shop. This vehicle for the 
offerlog proves ideal, as the weights are necea- 
sarlly a part of tbe setting: The act went very 
big. and took several bows. 

Bnd Fisher, the tamnns cartonniat and creator 
of tbe famous comedy rbaractera Mntt and Jeff, 
ia featured on the bill for the week of the 
twenty-eigbtb. and will nndnnbtedly pmve one 
of tbe greatest box olBee magnets tbe Majestic 
has ever known.

Intimate Sketches of the Careers and Personalities of Men Powerful in the World of 
Amusement Whether or Not Prominent in the Public Eye , 



GEO. M.. COHAN. 

No producer enjoys so distmct!y_ an 
international and thoroughly American 
a popularity as Geo. M. Cohan, the hust- 
ling young Irish American, whose songs 
and sayings are repeated in . air the sec- 
lions of the globe where civilization has 
progressed far enough to appredate the 
spice of wit and song. Up to the pres- 
ent, Cohan has furnished the dramatic 
and lyric stage with no less than four- 
teen plays that have found favor on he 
American Stage. 

Probably no name in the world of 
histrionic art is better or more favorable 
known. Not only for the genuine satis- 
faction his son^s and plays have; given 
the ainusemeiit' world, but to' the fact 
that at no time in his career; has he 
..stooped to saladous and vulgar: meAods 
•■to'create an appeal for his- wares. ■ 
,' To this, an everlasting credit to Geo. 
' M. Cohan, may- be attributed the vogiie 
thi$:author, actor, composer, playwright 
manager and producer, have come to 
have. 

Jerry ^. Cohan, the father of the Yan- 
kee Doodle Boy, as he is affectionately 
. called, was the first of . a long line of 
American Celts to adopt the stage as a 
profession, whidi he did; by accepting 
the first important engagement with the 
Morris Bros. Minstrels, at Providence, 
R. I. This was in 1867. An old Phila- 
delphia programme, supplied by Frank 
Dumont, sets forth the fact that Jerry 
J. Cohan was. a me'mber of La Rue's 
Carnival Minstrels from December, 1868 
to June. 1869. Diiring the season of 
1869-1870. the elder Cohan became iden- 
tified with the McEvoy Hibernians, 
and created the character of Barney, the 
guide, in that then famous organization. 

In 1872, the elder Cohan organized 
Haley and Cohan Hibernian and Irish 
Minstrel troupe, but left that branch 
of the business to sit on the opposite 
end to Sam Sharpley in Sharpley's Min- 
strels in 1873. 

Jerry J. Cohan was married to Helen 
F. Costigan in Providence, R. I., Sep- 
tember. 1874. The two children, George 
M. and Josephine, were both born in 
1 rovidcnce. 

George Michael Cohan first saw the 
light of day in the Rhode Island Capital, 
July 4, 1878, a day since revered by 
inm m story and song. The theatrical 
season previous to his arrival had not 
been a monetary triumph with the Cohan 
taojily. and the arrival of its heir ap- 
parent was not accompanied with too 
•nany luxuries, nor was there any great 
popul,ir demonstration to signalize the 
"nport.mt event 

Gcom'c M. Cohan made his first 'pro- 
lession.il appearance with' his family, 
ihe 1 our Cohans's in 1886, when he 
Pja.ved second fiddle in the orchestra for 
fcckiiior Farsmans Daniel Boone Com- 
Wny- He also sold song books ■ and 
^tncnvisc made himself' generally usc- 




GEORGE M. COHAN. 



Capt Jack Crawford, the "poet 
scout," was the star of the organization, 
and he promoted little George to the im- 
portant role of the Boy Violinist. 

As a lad of five years, a violin was 
one of his Christmas offerings the elder 
Cohan presented to his son, George M., 
and before he had reached the age of 
seven years, he was a remarkably pro- 
ficient performer on it. 

In 1887, Geo. M. Cohan essayed his 
first real part, that of a fly kid, in his 
father's prodtictibii. of The Two Bar- 
neys. • ,, ■■. 'f' . _ ~ , ' 
: It was in*1889 that the Four Cohans 
toured' the oiuntry as the Cohan Fanuly 



of Mirth Makers, in a playlet written 
by Jerry J. Cohan, called Four of a 
Kind. The performance consisted of a 
piano solo by Josephine Cohan, that was 
followed by the sketch. Four of a Kind, 
then came a violin solo by "the world's 
greatest virtuoso," Master Geo. M. Co- 
han. Sister Josephine had a dance, 
and then came another piano solo by 
daughter Josephine, after which came, 
the niece de resistance. The 'Alarming 
Sacrifio^, another sketch from the pen 
of Jerry;J. ^"'^^(i:^ '•' 

In "1891, "when* 'scarcely thirteen years 
bf i^e, Geo. St..\Cohan)nia^e it loi^ in- 



dependent tour as the boy in P^'s Bad> 
Boy. 

The sketch team, known as The Four- 
Cohans, was formed in-1892L They im- 
m'ediately jumped iqto prbniineiice,^an<i 
their dramas and farces,. were in much* 
demand. --'n" 

When Geo. M[r vGbhah'..;'was . fifteen> 
years old^ he finished' ani^ 'presented his- 
first independent; poilip'rodiit^'.r'It was- 
called Money to Btfrn.'! -It-prdyed a very 
funny sketch, and itntiued' with', its suc- 
cess, Mr. . Cohan wtote"cinother, .called* 
Goggle's Doll House,VaSd.'a"'third 'under 
the title of- The Professor's Wife. Not 
content with furnishing the sketch for 
his family,. Georgtej who has inheriteds 
an ear for: music, began comp.osint^ 
songs and incidental^ music to accomr: 
pany the chatter. A Hot Old Time, I 
Guess I'll Have. to . Telegraph My Baby,. 
Venus , My Shining- Star, Why JJid' 
Nellie Leave Her Ho.me,. and Under- 
neath the Blankets in a Folding Bed,, 
were all ,w'ritten. before he had attained' 
hi.s sixteenth ye,ar. ■ 

The Governor's Son -was "Written and> 
produced- as a;.sketch' wtfen. George was. 
eighteen years ^oldl .' Tlys^was ' f Olk)wetf ; 
by Ruiming 'for OflScej^also' a twenty 
minute ' sketch; ' Both " 'of these little- 
playlets were' afterwards lengthened in- 
to three act plays/"with music, and it 
may be said that it really was these two- 
plays that made the public sit up and 
pay some attention to the" "Cohan kid,"" 
as vaudevillian folk called kGco. M.,: io' 
those days. The Cohans had now es- | 
stablished themselves, and were strongr j 
favorites in the popular priced theatres i 
throughout the country, as well as Tony- 
Pastor's old theatre in 14th Street. New- 
Vork Citv, and at Keith's rvaudeville 
house. But the big theatres of New 
Vork knew th'em not iat all, and when» 
that musical melodrama. Little Johnny- 
Tones, was booked for the Liberty The- 
atre, New York City, there were many- " 
that underestimated the ability and gen- 
ius of this quadri-membered family. 

Little Johnny Jones, at the Liberty: 
Theatre, did not score such a tremen- : 
dous triumph. There was .something- 
lacking in the third act, and Mr. Cobanr 
booked it on tour for a few weeks out 
of town, during which time he rewrote- 
the final act, and came back to Gotham,. ■ 
this time at the big New York Theatre, : 
when Little Johnny Jones scored ther. 
biggest hit of its time. 

Forty-five Minutes from Broadway, a. 
satire on the village of New Rochelle,i 
N. Y., was written and produced witli« 
Miss Fay Templeton as the star in 190S. , 
It bad a lon^ arid successful run, and is- 
even now being presented in stodc: fronf:

a splendid floor is an attnctlon that Is In great 
favor with tbe young people. 



HILLSIDE PLEASURE PARK. 

As stated In last week's Issue, Newark, K. 
J., is "thrice blessed" In the matter of amuse- 
ment parks— Hillside, Electric and Olympic. The 
latter two were given a review in the preceding 
lasue, . while Blllalde was reserved nntU this 
week. 'Hillside is a restful and attractive name 
tor a park tbat tnlfllls In every detail ttae va- 



single five cent tare rate to about 800,000 per- 
sons. 

As one enters the park he Is Immediately 
greeted by tbe ham ot the hnstling concession- 
ers, who skirt the entrance on all aides and in 
all directions. At a little distance to the right 
the official office Is located, secreted In a cor- 
ner ot a Iimch casino. To the left as one en- 
ters the big bonding used as a .dance floor and 
skating rink attracts tbe attention. This floor 
Is ot ample area, and ot very durable material. 
80 tbat tbe devotees ot ttae skating art rally 
most ' strongly to the Hillside gathering place. 

At a little distance from this building is tbe 
large arena In which Mr. Thaller's own wild 
west performances, nnder ttae supervision ot 
Barney Demarest, are held every ' afternoon and 
evening. A abort walk across the bridge which 
spans the lake brings ns to the menagerie en- 




Tlous associations that the name applies— rolling 
contour — verdure on all sides — tall trees and 
cool shade. 

The management have been most careful In 
their provlaions tor their patrons' comfort and 
entertainment, ttae grounds being stndded with 
restful nooks, cool retreats, engaging devices, 
a very commendable menagerie, and an alluring 
lake with plenty, ot rowboats. Even a cursory 
Rlimpse ot tbe offerings convinces tbat W. E. 
H. Thaller has carefully devised every means 
ot making hia guesta enjoy themselves. Ttae 
Hillside Pleasure Park Company has ttae follow- 
ing official staff: .Ctaaa Ttaaller, president; J. 
Marsball. vice-president; T. W. Crowley, secre- 
tary, and W. B. H. Thaller, treasurer and gen- 
eral manager. Their capital stock Is qnoted 
at tl2S.O0O, Tbe gtonnds comprise aeventy-alx 
acres In Belleville, a twenty-two minute ride 
from tbe heart ot Newark, attainable at the 



closnre. The stock Is tlie property of William 
Bartels Co., whose offices are located on Cort- 
land Street In New York City. The selection 
of animals presented Is moat felicitous and al- 
together imexjiected tor a park in a town so 
close to tbe Bronx Zoological Garden in New 
York City. Many animals ot equally as rare a 
species are on exhibition at Manager, Thaller's 
resort. We can gain some appreciation ot the 
animals displayed when we learn tbat Mr. Bar-

A True Wag- 
nerian Pianist 



New Tork, Sept. 2 (Special to Tbe Bill- 
board). — Tbe sensation of Bulllvan & Consldlne 
feature acts is Tllmos Westony, who has Just 
begun bis second tour of the S. * C. chain of 
houses. Westony is billed as (be "Only Wag- 
nerian pianist In the world." It Is claimed 
that when a boy Westony waa "discovered" by 
Richard Wagner. Tbe great master was as- 
tonished when be first beara tne little Iluiignrlan 
Ii"* at the technique, tone and versatility Wes- 
tony posscastd, Wagner encouraged bim in 
every way and from that time Westony has 
been steadily going forward. 

Westony was a pnpll of tbe genius D'Vorak. 
He studied music since five years of age. His 
repertoire Is extensive, but for his vaudeville 
engagements he baa prepared a series of spec- 
tacular features. Including an Imitation on the 
piano of a complete orchL'Stra and a marvelous 
melody of Frencb, (German, English and Amer- 
ican antbems' which be plays simultaneously. 

Upon bis last visit to tbe theatres comprising 
tbe snlilyan & Consldlne Clrcnlt, Westony wag 
a phenomenal snccraa. In every bouae he. was 
fratnred and to almost all. of tbe bonaes on tbe 
clrcnlt he drew recoidTbreafcIng audiences. His 
lecond tour, which has iust been started, pre. 
sages to be a far (reater. aucccss than bis flrst. 



Friable doubted the ability of his machine liy 
stand another flight today, and aimuunced that 
be would not take the air this afteiouoa. 
The spectators, however, were net satlsfled nitli 
tbe explanations, and It is thought that ratlicr 
than make any r.*funders, FrUble'a munni;er$ 
sent blm up. He ascended from tbe track with, 
out difficulty and attained a height of about lii» 
feet, but In attempting to make a turn the 
plane tipped and Friable lost control. Tiie ma. 
chine came crasbing to the eartb, one o( tbe- 
wings striking a twrn and tbe blplam- glancinir 
off; struck tbe eartb witb Friable wdemeaihi 

IVIsble's wife, son and little girl were wlt- 
nesscB of the accident.

in Its bistocy. closed amid a storm of dlBCon-

lieen a spleiidld exposition reflectlOK the great-

<.f its people living peacefully amid an ahnnd- 
:iu<-e o{ agrlcultoral and manutactnrlns wealth, 
^'bis year in most respects the fair was a dla- 
t-rsce. From Its openinK day to Its close. It 
was a continued and constant source of bicker- 
ing. 

On account 'of thei ' abolition of the compU- 
muntary or pass - system, all the exhibitors, 
lioreemen and concesslonalrei were compelied 
TO pay escli and ereir time tbey enteied tbe 

grounds. 

To "break even," the exhibitors and privilege 
people who had wares to sell were compelled 
to Increase tbe prices. Tbe public, as usual, 
ciiffered tluanclallr by reason of the policy of 
tbs fair management. 

Another unpleasant feature of the fair was 
llio presence of the National Guardsmen as po- 
licemen, wbo arrested people without warrant, 
subjected th«m to **man handling" and under- 
took to pnnlsb them witbont trial. 

Au Illustration of tbese fresh boys' Inex-

treatment accorded Postmaster Harry Kmmm, 
wbu, on delivering stamps for the temporary

was very tonghly treated. On appeallnc to

Another Fake 

Agent Caught 



Tbe arrnmpanying Illustration is taken from 
a pl)o:ogniph of a grafter who was put to 
srief In Meridian, Miss., list week. This party 
went by the name of H. Spaolding and repte- 
/^nted that he was a purcliaslng agent and 
advertising solicitor for Bamum ft Bailey's

whom bp was working, uist Tuesday be blew

local coffee house for about $100.00 worth of 



formance of duty to protect visitors tnm In- 
eanitatlon. 

A. P. Saudles, the secretary, refused to be 
Interviewed by newspaper men and his side 
ot the alfflculty could not be learned. There Is 
no doubt that It will take - several state fairs 
In the future to eliminate the taste from the 
exhibitors, privilege people and the public's 
mouths, that the high-handed method that those 
In charge used In handling this fair. 

The attendance was 19.000 short of the last 
normal year, lOOB. Last year, < this city at fair 
time, was In the tbroes of a street-car strike. 
This year's attendance to be exact was 118,291

Hassan Beii Alfs 

Season 



New York. Aug.- 31 (Special to The Blll- 
bo«rd).— Whether it wa» engendered by the Im- 
pendinir . International war in Hotoeco or was 
netdr •'leflez of the prevailing bablt of the 
Cirla in eanyiuK Arabian .shoulder bags la a 
natter of, small moment. . The fact remains that 
this Is to be a no uncertain measure, so far 
as theatricals are concerned, a Morocco year. 

Thoogh Sie Hassan Ben All has been a flgnre 
In the ,amnaem~nt world for over twenty years, 
and has been busy enough to have acquired a 
comfortable fortune- fmm it, neither he nor his 
acrobats have ever been so mneb la demand as 
at the present time. He will have one troupe in 
«titb of tbe two Bobemlau' Girl companies that 
tbe Aboma are putting out. He has been asked 
^rlMHtr ft Co. to fnmlsh fifty Arabs and a 
Zwawa daneing^ girl for Tbe Garden of Allah 
and has already eaUed for Hohina, tbe most 
famous dancer in Tbngter. But the most Im- 
portant immediate task that Hassan has as- 
snmed Is that ot pnttlng on a big Eastern scne 
in the Hippodrome In which a caravan encamps 
la ftont of the Sphinx. 

There are two other Arabian plays schednled 
thns far. Edgar Selwyn's play. The Arab, which 
Hj-nry B. Harriii win produce in Bochester this 
week,, and Kismet, a Klaw & ErIanger produc-

of the season.

Hngh Ford, who is staging The Garden of

has been engaged: "We are goiUK to show tbe 
] Algerian dance as It is, not as it has been ex- 
I aggerated by performers at World's FUrs, 
I but as it really exists today in tbe countries

New Yorjt, Sept.. 3 (Special to The Flllboacd) 
— ^The Harris Theatre (so named in honor of 
Wm. R. Harris), formerly known as the Back- 
ett. opened Its doors to a very cnriens and en- 
thusiastic audience for a Thursday night, Aug 
31. premiere, curious to Inspect the remodeled 
piarhouse, enthusiastic to pay plaudltory horn- 
age, to Rose StabU an acknowledced mistress of 
vernacular wit among all actresses. Henry B. 
Harris bas changed tbe interior of tbe theatre 
materially, and has Improved It wonderfally In 
tKtth ornamentation and ' acoustics. So much 
for Mr. Harris; his. part was nobly done: 

No criticism of the popular star. Hose Stabi 
coold be registered. She rose to the full oppor' 
tnnities in moments of wit, 'wisdom and gcmilne 
pathos. What dramatic requirements t>,-ra 
called for the actress met with credit. Seed- 
less to remark, her conception of the humor m 
faer lines was delightfully keen, and many the 
line of dnll monotone or meaning that was 
made to bristle with personality when inter- 
preted by the former "Cboms Lady." As the 
ranting critic of tbe, American phrased It (af- 
ter dissecting the drama and plot Itself -nntU 
be convinced himself that Charles Klein failed 
to produce a pen atory as majestic, merltorlons 
and consummate as his masterful dramatic 

Elays): -But Rose Stahl herself soared above 
er play. She left It. like Lord TTIItn's dangu 
ter, 'lamenting.' She is ■ onlqoely clever wo- 
man, full of splendid possibilities, some of 
which emerged In Msggle F^per."

WEEK IN NEW YORK CITY 



HAMMER STEIN^S BIG BILL 

Program Offered for Last Week of Season at Roof of "Cor- 
ner" Theatre Replete with Sterling Numbers — New 
Pantomimic Production Makes Big Hit 



S>n' \'ork, SeptT 2 (Special to The Billboard). 
— Kor the last week of the spason ot ruot Tarl- 
etles at Hammcrsteln's "Corner" tbeatre a 
corliiD',- bill bus been arranged. Tbe leostb 
of Tbe program and the roof Itself were tbe 
bandlrapa an per castom to tbe opening (n<I 
closing acts, bat those artists In secure spots 
made tbe best ot their opportunities, and tbe 
result was. as we bave just said, a bill replete 
wltb entertalnlDs qualities. 

LaBelte Amita and Paul bad a most dlfflcnlt 
position— openlns the sbow — but racceeded In 
arresting tbe attention of tbe tardy ones by 
some EtaftUng gymnastic feats. The early spot 
also effected Alfredo, tbe Tlollnlat, a new act, 
and reviewed nneer that beaing. 

Hngb Uoyd bas tbe real opportunity of 
the eTenlng, for at tbe time of bis entrance 
the bouse was fairly welt tilled. Uoyd does 
eleven raimitcs work on tbe txraodlng rope, ana 
docs falfi work well, too. He bas an assistant, 
a woman, wbo other tban wbiatling ■ solo, does 
notblag bnt took pretty. Tbe ^'topsy turry 
..dancer;*' tJonis Stone, held over from the sec- 
ond week, was appreciated. 

A new pantomimic pndnctlon Itvrlewed un- 
der New Acts), called Tbe Apple of Parts, was 
presented by Coccla and Amato. assisted by a 
company of competent pantomlmlstg. Tbe 
piece went big. Tempest and Sansblne, who 
hsTe Jnst finished an engagament at the Win- 
ter Garden: Bert Lery, eivlns his "pictorial 
Idea of famous men and women," and Aida Ot- 
' erton Walker, assisted by Bobby Kemp and 
eight dusky maids, followed in the order 
named. Miss Walker and faer company closed 
the tlrst half of the dmw. 

A new comedy mtisleal act. WUlIams and 
IVmn, etn the second half of the sbow a splen- 
did start. Howard and Howard, who followed 
them, were a near riot. . 

Consnl the Great is back at the roof for an- 
■ other, week. At every week's rogagement In 
Hammersteln's Consnl baa a few new tricks 
that have been added to the loallne since tbe 
Rlmlan'i prerlons appearance' at the Comer, 
ne now 1^ several additional feats that are 
clever. * ' 



Even Bill at 

5th Avenue 



Nevr York, Bept. '3 (Special to The Bill- 
board). — Aside, from one or two .turns of fluc- 
t.naung tendency, tbe Fifth Avenne bill tbls 
week runs pretty well on a eenenu ti-nor of 
merit. Emma .Caras Is ,the,«bow's headllner. 
bnt it must be said that seTeral other artists 
a tbe . bill flnlabed In a tie with her In the 
race for tbe honor of the "hit of the bill." 

Joe Fanton and bis Awakening Athletes, an 
•ct that bas .,t>een nnnsnally a n eces af ul In tbr 
West, openi-d tbe.abow. On account ot tbe tact 
that this Is tbe Urst appearance of Joe Fanton 
and his athletes In New Xork tbelr nnmber is 
review^ed under New Acts. Second and third 
positions wvre filled by Tim Cronln and Porter 
J. White .and (Company, tespectlrely. tbe last 
named company presenting one of Oliver White's 
dramatic playlets called The Begnr. 

Just I-anded. the skit In which Walter and 
Georgia Laurence, regaled Fifth Avenue audi- 
ences. Is a clever conception In which Is em- 
tKNUed some original witty dialogne and one or 
two good aoag nnmbeia. A detailed di-scrlptlon 
of the vehicle In given tmder Kew Acts. 

SsleriM Is Wiled as Europe's sreateat Jn«- 

f lor, which means the Kreatcst In the world, 
be billing Is not an exaggeration. Salemn Is 
the best Juggler on tbe stage today. Uany 
may attempt to dnpllcate the InggUng : feats 
performed by Salerno bnt nevi-r nave they sue- 
cceiled In dolne the work as Salerno does It. 

Following Salerno In a hard spot, George W. 
Jones and Ben N. Oeely r-glstered a solid hit 
with tbelr hilariously tunny skit. Hotel St 
Reckless. Deely bas a song which Struck pop- 
ular fancy and the audience Insisted upon en- 
core after encore. 

To follow such successes as ' those rung up 
by the two acts precedins them on the bill 
meant hard worfi tor Mr. and Mrs. Allison to 
keen UB the pace, hnt at tbe Bnlsh they bri>eaed 
home a winner. Minnie from Minnesota, which 
Is the title of their otTering. bi a piece from 
Which the Allisons extract the best that Is In 

Emma Cams was eompelled to sins six songs 
before she wss permitted to retire.' This gives 
evidenre of the manner In which Miss Caras 
was recelveil, 

.„^'th some slight changes In the frame-up. 
xyiu Roebm's Athletic Girls gave exhibitions 
of fenrlng. boxiiuc. wrestling and bag punch- 
ing. That no one left tbe house while the act 
was^on and . that the audience remained seated 
long enough to shower approbation upon the 
performers Is a pretty good recommendation 
for the act. Fathers weekly pictures of a aeriea 
of enrrent , eTunts were Interesting.

Chicago, Sept. 8 (Special to;,The Billboard). 
—Through a deal with Joseph Grein this week, 
Jonei, IJnIck ft schaeter, owners ot the Wilson 
Avenne Theatre, obtained control ot the Clark 
Theatre at Clark Street and Wilson Avenue. 
This matter has been under consideration for 
some time, but owing to the high figure held 
out by Mr. Grcin, the desl could not be cim- 
oleted. This honse is lust four blocks from the 
fwilson Avenne Theatre and In order to avoid 
their own competition Jones, lamck & Schaeter 
have decided to run plcttres. The hoiise was 
booked last season by J. O. M«tthewB. hot ow- 
ing to Ito close proximity to the Wilson proved 
a losing proposition. 

Edwin T Emory's latest production, a word- 
less drama, embellished with an elaborate mu- 
sical setting, entlllod The Awakening of Bud- 
dha, and beaded by Gertrude *« Bend, the pan- 
tomlmlst and Hasel Harris, the danseuse sud

A Scarcity of 

Feature Acts 



Chicago. Sept. 2 (Special to The Billboard). 
— ^The various theatrical agents throngiiont Chi- 
cago report the greatest scarcity ot feature 
acts in the blsttoy of vandevUle. It seems 
that these feature acts obtaliuble an all signed 
up by the various tetai per cent agents and while 
most of the managers and agents aro averse to 
booking acts through this channel it seems to 
be a case of taking them or doing vcithoot. 
Norman Friedenwald bm signed np some of 
the biggest acts from the Bast and Is placing 
them on some of the big time. He sent three 
acts oa to the Cidted Time this week, several 
over the Western Clieiilt and s score or mote 
over the Pantages. 



A. H. Woods has added another comedian to 
his snlendld list of fun makers . that will sup- 
port Margnerlta Sylva In the new Vranx Le- 
bar comic opera. Gypsy lAve. George Blekel. 
formerly of BIckel and Watson, has been en- 
gaged to play the part of a German innkeeper 
With Henry E. DIxey. Albert Hart, Harry Mc- 
Donongh and George Blekel, the fan Interest 
win lie tept up at g tapid rate In the artva 
pTodaetlon. 



Interest of the Olalestlc audience, and that 
this duo la xeally exceptionally eo, was evi- 
denced by tlie enthusiastic applause accorded 
them <n_lloaday-sl(tit. However, as an act

(Here's one of those song and dance teams

Mot one popular song Is submitted in the entire

for an act of this nature. It is not the fact 
that there are not 'popular songs worthy of the

an original sort and one that yoa never ^av»

Miss Bonalr and Mr. Ward have chosvu a 
little summer flirtation as the vehicle for their

In a true boy and girl manner and Is Just fnU

furnished- by the W. V. M. A. If Mr. Doyle

Notes 



In the edition of The Billboard bearing date 
of August 26, an Item appearing under the T. 
M, A, Notes, referring to the placing or a 
marker on the grave of John Hoffman, mem- 
ber of Newark I.odge No. 28. by membera of 
the Cincinnati lodge, it was erroneously stated 
that thia was the first marker ever used by a 
T M A. Lodge. The writer of the note In- 
tended to say that the marker placed on the 
grave of Mr, Hoffman was the first ever used 
by the Cincinnati Lo<lge. To the Cleveland 
Ix>dge No. 9 belongs the credit of having first 
used the marker, four years ago, and to the

Washington, West Point and Niagara Falls. 
Mr. Reed experienced a great deal of trouble 
In obtainlne permission to take the pictures but 
he has agreed to show tbe films in Japan so 
that the friendship between this country and

Admiral over, might be Instilled into the 
minds of the Japanese people outside diplomatic 
circles as well as wltbin. Admiral Togo 
readily consented to having tbe pictures taken

choice of two ways to remedy tbe flickering 
light produced his failing carlKins — one by 
peering through a red glass which Indistinctly 
shows tile interior of the lamp house — the other 
by gating into the electrodes themselves there- 
by subjecting tbe operator to the contraction of 
electric ophthalmia, commonly termed snow- 
blindness. 

However. Sydney 3. Jacotison of Washington. 
D. C, has invented and patented a redector 
which by being attached opposite an aperture 
made In the lamp bonse lust where tbe illn- 
mlnatkm are Is locsted, reflects the Interior on 
the wall before the operator, enabling him 
to adjust the carbons without stopping the pic- 
ture and without harming his eye-Bight, So 
perfect Is this lens that the Image is perfect 
and the readjtlstment of carbons a plensnre,

that M. Witmark & Sons, publlsbers, will not

bst— and this Is atiU more remarkable— the 
Tear IBU marks the twenty-elgbth milestone In

would naturally Imagine that the members of

on Into the "sere and yellow" of sixty years

panics could also be devised. While 
it is, of course, unwise to arouse an 
audience's uneasiness by even sug- 
gesting the possibilities of a Are, a 
sense of security "could be instilled 
into spectators of moving picture the- 
atres, by projecting, at the beginning 
of each show, a slide explaining that, 
even though a film should explode 
or a flash be visible on the screen, 
there is no danger, as the curtain is 
of asbestos and the moving picture 
cabinet fireproof. Jf a slide of this 
nature were shown at each perform- 
ance, the people would soon become 
accustomed to its use, their fears 
would be dispelled and. In case of 
fire, they would' leave the theatre In a 
calm, unexcited manner. The Can- 
nonsburg catastrophe Is certain to re- 
sult in some stringent precautionary 
measures being adopted. Enterpris-

regulations by. taking the initiative.

Saturday, September 9^.1911. 



Fire! How small, insignificant, in- 
consequential, this monosyllable ap- 
pears In print; how awful and with 
what terror it strikes the heart when 
uttered In alarm. This sinister word 
breathed in-.fear, and yelled In fright, 

, epItonUzes : coontless stories of' grief, 
shattered ; fortunes and death. It Is 
almost synonymous with sepulchre: 
it is more dreadful to the ear than 
any other word or phrase In the En- 
glish language. Its use, or. In fact, 
its misapplication, has sent to join 
the ranks of the silent majority a 
number so great as to startle the most 
blase statisticiatt. ' Xiast week the uni- 
verse was .awed by a cataclysm 
wrought by- the Uttle word. fire. ; At 

■ Cannonsburg, Pa., during a . moving 
picture show, the film exploded, and 
while the damage done by the fire was 
very slight, twenty-six persons were 
killed almost inntamly and two-score 
more injured seriously in the panic 
which resulted when some thin- 
blooded craven yelled "Fire!" It Is 
true that the operator allowed smoke 
to enter the auditorium by opening 
the door of the booth, but it would 
have been possible for all persons to 
leave the building in perfect safety, 
and the fire could have been confined 
to the cabinet, had not the fatal word 
inspired terror into the audience, the 
majority of whom were women and 
children. In this : particular case the 
picture theatre was located on the 
second floor and hasty and safe egress 
was therefore rendered difficult. Sec- 
ond-storj- picture theatres are crim- 
inal and should' not be suffered by 
the authorities. The concentrated 
imprecations of public and press 
should be brought to bear against the 
establishment ot such places of 
amusement on the second floor, or 
such precautionary measures as the 
erection of fire-proof buildings should 
be adopted and coerced by legisla- 



It is said that a large ofEer has been 
made to a certain young woman who 
■s now the central figure in a Virginia 
murder case, to appear on the stage, 
tf such an offer has been made, we 
hope It was by some speculator not 
connected' with the stage, as we .do 
not want to think that any theatrical 
manager or anyone connected with 
the dramatic profession would be so 
low or unscrupulous as to attempt 
to stage somethi
